Home Invasion

The night overstays your company
You know the day will break again
if you refuse
to give yourself away to despair
The lover
wraps herself around your throat
digs her claws in your arteries
laughs at your virility
injects lead into your feet
claims you to be hers
fails to admit she is the trespasser

  1. Nice :). I struggle with metaphorical writing because I just create a literal mental image of what the words say! But with enough reading I managed to ignore that and figure it out xD. With longer poems it’s just too exhausting and impossible, so I like your shorter ones πŸ˜„.
